Welcome to The Tune Zoo! A musical world with creatures who love to play, and help you explore how music works. Designed with teachers, enjoyed by kids of all ages!

5/5 Stars, Best of The Best, Best Apps For Kids
"A fantastic music app that is highly versatile and enjoyable. Teaches many music fundamentals along the way with an outstanding, hands-on style that will appeal to even experienced musicians."

4/5 Stars, Common Sense Media
"Charming, fun ... chock-full of great information about different kinds of musical scales and their origins... a terrific, approachable way for kids to create their own tunes."

Geeks With Juniors
"So simple to use and engaging... [and] great production value. The sound quality is excellent, and the graphics bright and colorful. Kids will have a lot of fun."

The Tune Zoo is an easy-to-learn music toy that encourages beginner musicians (children or otherwise!) to explore many of the fundamentals of music: melody and harmony, expression, performance, interaction, collaboration, composition, arrangement and improvisation.

Play solo or jam together in a group; compose your own tunes with looping and key changes, or peek under the hood to explore the mechanics of melody, with harmonies and scales from all around the world – from Blues to Indian Ragas.

There are no rules, high scores, time limits or stress – just open-ended creative, constructive play. It's simple enough for a beginner to pick up immediately, but has enough layers of complexity to interest even the most experienced musician in the family!
